Now that is confusing. The emails from G3RXP relate to last week's
Low Power contest and have nothing to do with IOTA! I must admit the
timing of those mails just after I had submitted my IOTA log confused
me for a minute until I re-read it...

The Low Power scores do not use multipliers and are on a points per
QSO basis according to the power sent by the transmitting station.
You just add them together. But if you have set up SD correctly it
should do all this correctly and indeed put the correct claimed score
in the Cabrillo log. You can view and edit the Cabrillo log in
Notepad or your preferred (and better) text editor.
But I used SD 10.15 DOS and it worked fine. Perhaps there are
problems with the later Windows versions....
As for IOTA, SD 10.02 DOS which I downloaded last year worked
flawlessly in this year's contest - pity about conditions though (218
QSOs at G3YMC)!! These are handled by Don G3XTT. This year you get a
reply from the contest robot asking you to go to a website to
confirm, but the address in the mail I got doesn't work and produces
a 'cannot locate remote server' error...
